31 days of October Terror: 10/24

Day 24: Number 8 favorite is one of the most original and intelligent scary pictures to come out of the 70's, Phantasm. Shot on a shockingly small budget ($300,000) in relation to how much is up on the screen, Phantasm was released to lukewarm business and notice. Thankfully this picture found it's place on home video as there was nothing else quite like it on the shelves. No other film can provoke so much dread while being so much fun and there's nothing else quite like it.

My son is 16-months. I've already stared shouting "BO-O-O-YYY!!" at him. Love Phantasm. Love it.
